Hi Mark, I had similar problem on my e46 compact. There are probably many possible causes. Mine was a faulty wheel speed sensor. You will need to read the fault codes. There is a brilliant mini bluetooth OBD2 device that simply plugs into the cars OBD2 socket and links via bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet. A free app from the Google Play Store called Torque Lite will the talk to the vehicle computer and tell you in plain English what the fault codes stored are and what they mean. In my case the rear offside wheel sensor had failed which also caused the ABS to become inactive and also the ASC light to come on. Oh BTW, the mini bluetooth OBD2 device is about a tenner on ebay. The OBD2 socket is located above the drivers knee and is similar is size and shape to a scart socket. I think the socket has a dust cover but mine had been broken off already
Best of luck. Brian

no it sounds like a coincedence .

It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.

Usually on the inside of the Fuse Box Cover. The faults could also be related to failed relays.

Most common problems on E46 is fuel pump and vacuum leaks from old hoses. Get a wireless OBD adapter and OBD Fusion code reader app, read the trouble codes and freeze frame data. If your long term fuel trims are high (>10%) then it's running lean and likely vacuum leak.
Fuel pump should be replaced with an OEM Siemens/VDO brand every 100k miles.

Battery light is indicating that you have a problem with your charging system (alternator).
Sometime old faults are stored on system and need to clear the memory.
To clear the memory.
unplug both wires on battery terminal.
Touch them wire together that will clear any stored memory from the system.
Reconnect wire and re-check for any lights.

Hope that help.

Try to take your key for a test I suspect your transponder but you must tell us exactly what went on so we can go straight to the problem and assist you

You must use 5w\40 or 10w\40 remember BMW recommends castrol for engine oil

If the key turns in the lock, but does nothing, then the linkage has become disconnected or broken. The key is mechanical to the lock and the lock has a electrical switch to operate the central locking unit. Could be a simple broken clip from the lock barrel. Hope this helps

The gear is loose or worn or there is something in the lanes that stops it going forward. May be dirt, small branch or leaves. Clean it first if it still stick check the gear that moves the door.

remove the battery cables and touch them together to remove residual voltage leave disconnected for 1 hour then reconnect and read codes in computer

Have you checked to see if your switch is on? Your lights will work weather the key is on or not.
